About the Author

I live in Portland, Oregon. 

I'm a lead software enginner for a pretty darn cool test an measurement company by day. 

I'm a husband and father by night and weekends (and lunch, I live really close to work).

And in the early morning, and late evening, I explore ways to make me better at my job. 

I'm passionate about quality, efficiency, and functional testing. 

I'm passionate about always getting better at my job.

All of the best bits I've picked up about more efficiently and effectively testing software, I'm pouring into pythonTesting.net.

And all of the best bits of that I've poured into this book.
